'In The Land Of Blood And Honey' To Receive PGA's Stanley Kramer Award

LOS ANGELES, CA (December 13, 2011) – The Producers Guild of America (PGA), announced today that IN THE LAND OF BLOOD AND HONEY will be honored with the 2012 Stanley Kramer Award. The film’s producers will be honored with the award at the 23rd Annual Producers Guild Awards ceremony on Saturday, January 21st at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles.

The Stanley Kramer Award was established in 2002 to honor a motion picture, producer or other individual, whose achievement or contribution illuminates provocative social issues in an accessible and elevating fashion. Kramer created some of the most respected and successful works in the annals of American motion pictures, with such classics as THE CAINE MUTINY, HIGH NOON, THE DEFIANT ONES, and GUESS WHO’S COMING TO DINNER.

Previous recipients of the Kramer award include such films as THE GREAT DEBATERS, AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH, HOTEL RWANDA, IN AMERICA, ANTWONE FISHER, and the 2011 winner Sean Penn. Sean Penn was the first individual to receive the Guild’s Stanley Kramer Award.

“IN THE LAND OF BLOOD AND HONEY is an extraordinary film that portrays a complex love story set against the terrors of the Bosnian War, especially towards women,” said Producers Guild Presidents Hawk Koch and Mark Gordon. “This film truly embraces the legacy of Stanley Kramer.”

“We are extremely honored that the Guild has chosen to recognize our film,” shared producers Tim Headington, Angelina Jolie, Graham King and Tim Moore. “We are truly privileged to join the ranks of past recipients and to be associated with the great Stanley Kramer.”

  1. Stanley Kramer? Celluloid Stud. What a great roster of movies he breathed life into. Movies with a message that people actually remember decades later. Fancy that. And congrats to Jolie and Company for producing a film in the fine tradition set by Kramer…

  2. That’s great news. I can’t wait to see this movie.
    Tim Moore is an excellent Producer and a fantastic person.
